Lipstick League Question of the Week
Do you have a “signature” scent? If so, what is it?
G's answer: I have definitely had signature scents during various times of my life. In my tweens, it was Cacharel Anais Anais. During my senior year of high school it was Dior Poison. In college it was Body Time China Rain (the original China Rain fragrance and still THE BEST). When I got my first "real job" after college I fell hard for Fresh's fragrances (especially Hesperides) and I recently re-purchased Fresh Sugar Lychee after not having it for many years (I got it during the Sephora sale because I never pay full price for fragrance!). And lately I've been rediscovering old favorites like Auric Blends Egyptian Goddess, Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune, Lolita Lempika and Prescriptives Calyx. I'm sort of on a nostalgia kick when it comes to fragrance right now, and I don't have a current signature scent. I love so many and I'm an equal opportunity frag fan--I love everything from drugstore body mists to obscure boutique fragrances and everything in between!
